History repeating?

Apart from the appaling references and very poorly researched 'Links' regarding Native Americans and Deaf issues.  This blog was dire reading bordering on USA 'colonialism' and justifying the genocide of the native population. The real price of 'civilising' native Americans was the wholesale slaughter of them.

Native Americans paid heavily for being 'civilised'.   Indigenous people north and south were displaced, died of disease, and were killed by Europeans through slavery, rape, and war. In 1491, about 145 million people lived in the western hemisphere. By 1691, the population of indigenous Americans had declined by 90-95 per cent, or by around 130 million people." 

One could suggest audism was the least deaf have to worry about.
